The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    6:30 PM - Monday - 10 Barrel Eastside Pub

    Join a lively conversation on Bend, OR, community, belonging, social values, and the state of whiteness in America.

    What's it like to live in a magnificent place--that's also a White utopia? Join a lively conversation on Bend, OR, community, belonging, social values, and the state of whiteness in America. Rich Benjamin will offer lessons on what this “Whitopia” can teach us about the rest of the country today.

    A journalist-adventurer, Rich Benjamin is the author of "Searching for Whitopia: An Improbable Journey to the Heart of White America," which was selected as an Editor’s Choice by Booklist and The American Library Association. Benjamin is one of few analysts to have correctly predicted in advance the passage of Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump. Benjamin’s cultural and political analysis appear regularly in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, and FOX Business. Please follow him on Twitter @IamRichBenjamin

    Light snacks provided. Beverages available for purchase. Books available for sale.

    This event is presented in partnership with Oregon Humanities and OSU-Cascades.

    Explore the life, the legacy, and lugubrious last days of Edgar Allan Poe.

    In the autumn of 1849 Edgar Allan Poe, America's most celebrated poet, critic, and literary innovator boarded the train from Richmond, Virginia to New York City. Poe never reached his destination. One week later, he was found, drunk, delirious, and obviously dying, in the city of Baltimore. In the days leading up to his death in a Baltimore hospital on October 7th, 1849, Poe never once regained his senses nor was he able to reveal anything as to how he had come to be in the state he was in.

    Even before that last nail was in Poe's coffin prior to his hasty burial in a Baltimore cemetery, speculation had already begun as to what had killed the author of "The Raven" and the inventor of the detective story. Those speculations have continued for more than a century and a half and, unlike Poe's own tales, a brilliant resolution to the mystery has not been forthcoming.

    Actor, lecturer, and Poe expert Alastair Morley Jaques, who has played America's dark master of the macabre and original literary bad boy on the stage for more than a decade will present the documented historical facts about Poe's final hours and discuss some of the leading theories that have been put forth by Poe scholars regarding the life, the legacy, and lugubrious last days of Edgar Allan Poe.

    Actor, lecturer, and storyteller Alastair Morley Jaques studied Theatre Arts and American Literature at the Evergreen State College and the University of Oregon. He has appeared in a professional capacity in roles both Shakespearean and contemporary on stages all along the West Coast in addition to lending his talents to numerous radio and television commercials and voice overs. His most frequent and celebrated role is as Edgar Allan Poe in his one-person show An Evening With Edgar Allan Poe. An avid reader and collector of the historically strange, eldritch, and arcane, he lives in Portland, Oregon where he spends much of his time in a bell tower overlooking a crypt and a columbarium. *fbl*
